Ventlock Tailgate Lock

The Ventlock Tailgate Lock allows more ventilation into your car than just leaving windows open. It works by fixing the rear door or tailgate in a semi-open position and combined with a front window open just an inch or two, it allows free flowing air just where the dogs need it most - on their nose at the back of the vehicle.

Another major advantage is that with the Ventlock secured between car and tailgate all but the most determined thief will be kept out. It takes only a few seconds to fit or remove and the car can be locked in the normal way using either the key or central locking. Best of all it fits 99% of Estate Cars / Hatchbacks / Vans or 4 Wheel Drive vehicles fitted with a rear door.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a Ventlock
Every summer all around the world there are incidents involving dogs which are either stolen or die from heat exhaustion. It is usually as a result of having been left in a car by owners who don't take the proper precautions to see that their Pets are both secure and have good ventilation.
Of course there are times when it is convenient to leave your dog in the car. Going to shows or Competitions are a couple of examples. Even a visit to the supermarket or motorway services for just 20 minutes needs careful thought. During the summer months the inside of a car can get very hot in a short period of time. The temperature can rise from a comfortable 20 degrees to a Killer 40 degrees in a matter of minutes.

Here are some Facts
They make grim reading but are absolutely true! On a hot day the temperature inside a stationary car can rapidly increase to double that on the outside, and this can happen within six to ten minutes depending on the weather conditions.

Dogs experiencing heat stroke go through a number of stages.

1) Initially they will show increased activity with panting accompanied by barking or whining. The dog will be obviously agitated.

2) The panting becomes excessive and laboured with copious drooling of saliva being seen.

3) The next stage is where the dog is obviously struggling to breath; it may appear glassy eyed and have dark red gums.

4) Beyond this point the dogs body temperature will have reached the point where cell death in the brain results in seizures, coma and ultimately death.

One final thing. As dog owners ourselves we feel duty bound to say that whatever method of ventilation or protection against sunlight you use, there can be no substitute for checking your pet on a regular basis.
We recommend that you do not leave pets unattended for long periods in a Stationary vehicle in direct sunlight. The Ventlock is not suitable for use when the vehicle is moving or when the engine is running and can never be a substitute for responsible pet ownership.

The Usual methods of Ventilating your vehicle

With the sunroof open you will get a soaking wet seat if there is a sudden downpour of rain. The amount of ventilation available is not what you think it would be. Most dogs are kept in the Rear of the car and so the air from an open sunroof does not circulate anywhere near them.

With the windows open you run a higher risk. If they are open enough to give good air circulation for your dog then they are open enough for the casual thief to put a hand through the window and open the door with ease. This not only makes your property in the car easier to steal (radio, phone, camera Binoculars etc.) but, even more worrying are the horror stories of dogs being stolen from parked vehicles.

The Tailgate Lock provides a third way by allowing more ventilation into your car than just leaving windows open. It works by fixing the rear door or tailgate in a semi-open position and combined with a front window open just an inch or two, it allows free flowing air just where the dogs need it most - on their nose at the back of the vehicle. We manufacture the VENTLOCK to the highest possible standard to help responsible owners keep their pets well ventilated but still locked inside the car. The combined Ventilation Lock is made from quality British Steel and then fully coated with a Tough Polymer based Epoxy Polyester Finish or durable Nickel coating. The Ventlock is incredibly strong and is made to withstand many years of hard use.
